FRONT BRACE INSTALL, Part 2
Step 2, fish two mounting bolts as shown above, result in pic below with threads hanging down.
Now lift brace into place. You need to get washer and nut onto those front bolts without pushing the bolts back up inside the subframe. The key to getting nuts started is to shove brace forward as you see me doing in picture below with my left hand, so it puts some tension on the bolt, while I start the nut with my right hand. This pressing against the bolts with the brace keeps them from spinning just enough to get the nuts started(use this same trick with the other braces).
Next two bolts from front are large factory bolts, but remove washers which don't fit the holes in the brace. Make these finger tight.
Finally, third set of holes for front brace get the 8mm bolts.
After you get all bolts finger tight, grab your torque wrench...and buy a torque wrench if you don't have one or you will snap off one of these bolts in a whole and have a mess of trouble recovering it.
Tighten the BIG factory bolts in the middle holes, torque to 60 ft/lbs
Then torque front bolts to 25ft/lbs
Finally, torque rear bolts to 20ft/lbs
